Creastoric Software ( has updated Log Leech for Mac OS X to version 1.3. The new version sports an updated log parser that provides faster startup and refresh times.

There’s also a new new chronological view that allows you to see all log entries in the order in which they occurred. Log Leech allows you to view your system logs in an easy-to-understand format and lets you search, sort, and filter log entries.

Whenever an application on your system encounters something unexpected, it typically creates a log entry in a hidden file called the Console Log. While every Mac comes with a utility to view this file, it displays every log entry from every application in a big jumbled mess, according to the folks at Creastoric Software.

Log Leech requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. It’s Universal Binary, so runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. Log Leech costs US$10, though version 1.3 is a free update for registered users.
